It took a while for this to see the daylight but it’s here to the delight of many users who wanted to see their Tasks on the Home Tab of HTC Sense (that is 2.5).
First of all, you need to have Co0kie’s Home Tab 1.6.1 installed as a prerequisite, after which you can install Advanced Home Tab. A Soft Reset is required and after that, all your Tasks syncronized from Outlook or Exchange will be displayed on your Home Screen. You can access Tasks by either swyping left on your Calendar entries or by tapping the small
Settings can be accessed from the Registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareHTCManila where you have the options:
Hulzer.SortBy (0 – Status, 1 – Priority, 2 – Subject, 3 – Start Date, 4 – Due Date) and Hulzer.ShowComplete (0 – Show incomplete tasks only, x – Show tasks completed within the last x days).
* Manage your Outlook tasks on Manila home screen
o New Swipe-to-left / Swipe-to-right gesture to switch between appointments and tasks
o Scrollable task list (show nearly any number of task items)
o Due date is colored red when the task is overdue
o Complete your tasks using the checkboxes (with vibration feedback)
o Sort tasks by Status, Priority, Subject, Start Date or Due Date
o Filter completed tasks by age
o Automatic refresh on switch / on edit
* Small flip clock
* Small weather animation
* More space for information due to new layout
* Co0kie’s call history fully supported (hidden, always, dynamic)
Thanks for the tip, @hvoltage!
